    Hi guys, its been a while since I have been around these parts due to real life time contraints. However, I am now getting back to (my) reality which is playing games :)

    I am very interested in any info on HL3 and a new CS. Love these games.

    Also - an mmorpg would be nice. Aion looks promising but if you die it looks pretty harsh.

    I am also looking for a game that I can meet up online in co-op mode to go through the story with a friend. What are the best options here ? :)

    Welcome back, Steven. :)

    Since I don't play MMORPGs I can only give you some info regarding HL3 which is quite old already and only a speculation that hints at a possible HL3.

    Basically, in December 2007, Doug Lombardi mentioned that Half Life won't end with the release of Episode 3 for HL2:

    With the amount of time between episode 2 and 3 I'd wager that 3 is going to be used to build hype prior to the release of the next full game. Else valve is working on something new :)


    *sigh* diablo 3 is supposed to have co-op... :( I'm dying here blizzard!

    Yeah, I'm looking forward to this one too. 4 player coop FPS, with Diablo type drops, to satisfy your need for twich and lootwhoring.

    Try out Resident Evil 5 for a good recent coop game. Just make sure to get it for PC.

    Resident Evil 5 is perfection for playing with a friend.

    HL3 is not in the works. Valve is working on Half Life 2: Episode 3, but I don't think that was what your asking for, even though it is going to be a brilliant game, knowing Valve. Valve did state that Half Life 2 will not be the end of the Half Life series some time ago.

    There is no real need for a new CS. None is in the works.

    While there has not been any solid info on HL3 or CS2, the original creator of Counter-Strike is making a new game, Tactical Intervention

    It mentions CS2 in there and the article published 9/28/09.

    Thank you all so much for the information and apologies for the delay in replying :)

    RE5 it is then! :)

    Will wait for these others games to prevail as well :)

    If they did develope HL3 it would likely be hyped as optimized for consoles the way things are going:wanker:

    People who will play that crap Borderlands are idiots, lol seriously. Play Call of Duty 4 or Left 4 Dead, they are what real men play.

    Wow don't be too judgemental there. I could say the same about people who play Team Fortress, which IMO is a silly game that doesn't need to exist, but I'm not going to, because people like it and clearly it sells.

    and a large part of the people who play COD4 right now use hacks. I would know.. I played online almost every day since its release, and I only stopped just a couple months ago. If you pay attention, it is clear to see the change in "skill" over the past couple years playing online.. doesn't take a genious to notice..

    This is true, TF2 has basically gone to crap. It started out entertaining but honestly there isn't a lot there.

    Then again Borderlands doesn't look that great either, even for a coop game. I'd say RE5 is a better bet.

    In terms of an all out well made suspenseful and action packed game then yes. Which really I would be surprised if it wasn't coming from Capcom. I have yet to see a game from Capcom that was unpolished or rushed to release. Just doesn't happen with their games.. and thank god for that. At least one dev company knows how to get it done and has standards

    Of course, if you're a fan of the earlier Res Evils, this one looks the best and plays real well, but really doesn't offer much "new" in the way of story or atmosphere. It feels pretty similar to 4 in that way.. for me anyway.
